    It is, indeed. I've seen one other, in an old issue of Photography Annual,
    from Sports Illustrated, that is as good. The same sort of shot, but
    tighter on the fighter's heads. And done without the benefit of strobes and
    10 frames per second. It just shows you what mastery of your craft, and a
    little luck, can do.

    Ya... Of course on the other hand...
    ....If they'd had 10fps, and auto-whiz-bang doodads, that shot wouldn't be
    quite as famous...because it wouldn't be quite as rare. :)
    Amazing shot...
    ....And it's amazing...despite being grainy, blurry, and not all that well
    lit. It just proves, once again, that a shot can great regardless of
    perfection in the technical side that many of us (myself included) tend to
    focus on (no pun intended).

    This is a nice shot, but, in all due respect, is not in the same class as
    the Marciano/Walcott photo.

    The whole jawbone will move under the impact.

    Ever been bowling??
    Transfer of energy is a fairly simple concept.
    If you're really curious...have a buddy punch your left cheek while you
    watch your right cheek in the mirror.
    It will become quite clear how both cheeks move more than a touch...

    Joe" still >alive<, after it landed? <g>
